When users access Arc through Canvas, users are automatically given an Arc account and added to the Arc users list. However, if you need to add a specific user to Arc (usually as an admin), you should create their account through your institution's Arc site.

When you add a user to your Arc site, the user receives an email invitation to create a password to access the Arc site.

Note: Currently once you create a user, you cannot remove the user from the Arc account.

Enter the user's information for the account. The user's information only affects how the user is viewed in the Arc account and does not have any affect on a user's Canvas account. However, for best results, a user's Arc account information should match the user's Canvas information.

In the Full Name field [1], enter the user's full name.

In the Display Name field [2], enter the name that should be seen by other users in the account.
